Cleveland, OH

The Cleveland metropolitan area is the 28th most populous in the country, with over 2 million residents. The region has already seen a 1.4% increase in college attainment over the last 2 years, to 30.3% (source), and expects to report an even higher percentage when the Talent Dividend challenge ends in 2014.

More good news for Cleveland's efforts: A recently-announced $500,000 planning grant from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation to develop a project called Completion by Design, with the goal to increase college graduation rates for low-incomes students under the age of 26.
